Review – Colour B4 Extra Strength Hair Colour Remover

Over the years I have coloured my hair brown, black, red, blue and purple. My hair is naturally blonde, like white blonde.

After experimenting with lots of colours I decided that I would go back blonde. I picked up Colour B4 Extra Strength Hair Colour Remover from boots as it was on offer for £6.66.



I read the instructions carefully and understood that Colour B4 wouldn’t actually make my hair back to blonde but it would lighten my hair and remove colour build up.



Whilst mixing the products I noticed a horrible smell of rotten eggs!

I applied the product on to my hair making sure it was all covered and fully saturated. I then wrapped my hair in cling film and covered with a towel over the top. I then sat and waited patiently for 60 minutes while the product did its thing.



Once the 60 minutes was up I jumped in the shower and rinsed the product out for 10 minutes, making sure there was a constant flow of water on my hair to rinse it thoroughly. I then applied half the included buffer product to my hair and left it for 1 minute, rinsed and then applied the second half and rinsed.




I knew my hair would have a slight ginger tint to it, as my hair cuticles have been stained from previous dying. So I bought  Provoke Touch Of Silver Colour Care Shampoo, to help counteract the brass tone. I also used the Provoke Touch Of Silver Colour Care Conditioner.




Colour B4 did remove the colour and build up as described on the packet. I would say if you have long or thick hair to buy two packets. The only downfall was the smell which lasted a few days. I did not notice any damage to my hair and would use this product again.


UPDATE – I now use the Bleach London Silver Shampoo and Bleach London Silver Conditioner to maintain my ash blonde hair!
